we all can see the club are looking at getting rid of 3 up top that are doing nothing for us , would he do more for us than the ones going out , well that's easy YES
as for what about him V DCL https://www.premierleague.com/stats/player-comparison on that he would be the player starting games
Cheers for this link it's fucking gold!
I'm always asking folk on here for stats because I don't get to watch enough football outside of Everton - now I can do my own dirty work!
So I compared DCL and Mitro on the above link. A couple of things really stood out to me:
Mitrovic scored 11 of his goals from inside the box (6 with his head) compared to DCL's 5 (and 4 with his head). I think we need this quality in the team.
For all the praises of DCL's work-rate and hold up play - Mitrovic's figures are through the roof:
DCL / Mitrovic
Passes: 430 / 1,026
Pass completion%: 61 / 72
Passes forward: 118 / 212
Passes backward: 94 / 339
Touches: 802 / 1,684
Twice as many touches as DCL. He did play 2 more games than DCL but that's nothing over a season. I found that quite impressive, although it does look as though maybe Fulham were playing everything up to him every single time.
My only thing with Mitrovic is that he doesn't really look like a footballer. He's another one like Grant Holt. Looks like a Sunday league player who turns up at the pub carpark with a hangover, stinking of booze at 9.00am and eating last night's pizza for breakfast. He just doesn't look healthy to me.
